The global market is estimated to reach $2.60 Billion USD by 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.5% from 2016 to 2022, according to a new report from MarketsandMarkets entitled, “GaN Power Devices Market by Technology (Semiconductor Materials, Transistor Application Technologies), Wafer (Wafer Processes, Wafer Size, and Design Configuration), Device (Power Discrete, Power ICS), Products, Application & Geography – Global Forecast to 2022.”
Three major segments which show tremendous growth are satellite communication, RADAR, and wireless application due to the new launches of GaN power semiconductor devices for these application segments and continuous technological developments to improve the power handling capacity and increasing the switching frequency. This report analyzes the Global GaN Power Devices market with respect to market drivers, opportunities, and trends in different regions.Emergence of new technologies will drive the growth The development of GaN-on-Silicon technology, with GaN deposited on highly doped silicon substrates in the end of the previous century, facilitated development of high-brightness and ultra-high brightness LEDs. Several other technologies facilitated development of organic and phosphor LEDs, leading to production of several blue, violet, purple, UV, and white LEDs throughout the past decade. The latest development that aids this field is quantum dots (QD) technology. The biggest advantage and driver for the GaN semiconductor devices market is the continuous emergence of technologies to overcome the challenges faced at every stage, thereby increasing the production volume every year.Information communication technology and consumer electronics segments contribute maximum market share The ICT sector combines both Information technology and communication (including all forms of communication, such as RF, satellite, and telecommunication) sectors. The technological evolution of the GaN semiconductor devices is accelerating the usage of GaN-enabled devices in this end user sector,primarily owing to increased demand and extensive industry focus on various types of RF and wireless applications.
Consumer electronics is one of the major revenue contributing end use sectors, with significant revenue for GaN opto-semiconductor devices. The revenue growth is slowly gaining pace with slow penetration of GaN power semiconductor devices for various consumer applications.Japan expected to contribute the largest market share for GaN Wafer Market Japan is expected to have the largest market share and dominate the GaN wafer market from 2016 to 2022.
